I agree... I just went thru the intersection the other day and thought this is so unsafe!

it is a dangerous intersection. so,right no one lets you by when your trying to get in and out of that intersection. If you don't want to put a light at least put a police officer there to direct.

This was not an accident. I saw it. I was right behind the vehicle that was turning right into Lowther St. She drove right into the other vehicle's path. The other vehicle had not chance to stop and avoid the crash. However, I do agree with putting a police officer at that intersection and at the intersection of A St and Concord. There were two little kids, one on each vehicle.

@Fram Man - Thanks for the info. Did you have to stick around to give a testimony of what happened? How were the kids from your perspective?

Lowther is a drag strip at times and try getting out of your driveway when school lets out.
